Mitchell was reared in Los Angeles, during the noteworthy era of the Civil Rights Movement. During an interview with the Oakland, Tribune, she recalled living in an Urban setting in Watts, California, during an era in American history that became a motivating influence behind her writing career, when three-days of rioting in August 1965 changed her life.
